Got to admit I love the anti-piracy ad though.
"You wouldn't steal an handbag"
Really? You don't even know me! Maybe I would? What are the circumstances? What if there was £1,000,000 cash in there? You telling me you woudn't be tempted?
"You wouldn't steal a car"
Again with the presumptions! Maybe I just stole that handbag with £1,000,000 cash in it and the police are chasing me. Tell you what that car is now looking quiet tempting!

i think the best thing to happen to the music industry is Spotify...
-Don't want to pay, have adverts and a few less features (offline playlists, etc)
-Want to pay, don't have adverts, have extra features...
To quote the meerkat "simples", shame the film industry hasn't followed suite.

I use lovefilm.com for DVD/Bluray/Xbox360/PS3 rentals (average 6 disks a week), and have a Cineworld Unlimited card so I see every new film that comes out, I happily pay for it and if there is a film I like enough to get the DVD/BluRay I will pay that cost too, but only because I know I will get at least several viewings of the DVD; I currently own over 400 legal DVDs and every one of them has had at least 4-5 viewings over the past 6 years of my collecting, I usually watch at least 1 a night.
I don't care about the ads/warnings etc, I just put the dvd on and then go make a cup of tea or something, come back and it's ready to go: it's called planning ahead people! lol and I can't honestly say I've come accross that many DVDs where you can't skip almost all of the ads/warnings or just press "menu" twice to start the film, and most of the BluRay's I've rented so far go straight to playing the film without pressing a single button!
The one thing I refuse to pay DVD/BluRay prices for is TV shows, especially if I want to watch something from years ago (ie The Original Series of Star Trek), the price of the DVD/BluRay for TV is ridiculous, so I get those solely on rental.

Their catalog is slightly different too - some things still missing from each though.
